I think ksrunr was here first. At least he showed up in the VRAA thread before I did. Anyway, good Thursday to you, whether you're here first, last, or somewhere in between. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"><br><br>

Morning Millbot,<br><br>
I thought I'd let someone else start the daily as I sometimes put the wrong date on it <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Very Happy"><br><br>
7 miles this morning with 5 X 1K's imbedded and 2 min 30 rest between.<br>
3:14; 3:44; 3:54; 3:40; 3:27 very inconsistent. Done with a partner who always goes out too hard early. Add all 5 together and you get approx. 18 flat for 5K. Goal race in Nov 18:30.<br><br>
ksrunr<br>
swimming in 99% humidity this morning!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/surprised.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Surprised">

This morning I did 50 crunches, and tons of upper body work -- biceps, triceps, lat pull down, low row, shoulder raises with weights, bench press, pulley row, dips, etc. No push ups - I just couldn't deal with them. Cooled down with 5 mins on the arm bike thingy.<br><br>
Nothing tomorrow as I have an early meeting and then we're heading into NYC for a concert.<br><br>

Good morning, everyone. As usual, Ksrunr and Millbot got an early jump on the day. Triple J, not far behind. {{sillyanklemuscle}}.<br><br>
I'm resting today. My achilles is still bothering me and I just have to be smart about this. I had signed up for a 3 mile race on Sunday, but I'm even thinking that's probably not wise. I keep telling myself "a week or two now could save 2 months or more later". Wish me luck...<br><br>
I may be able to get to the pool late today, but I'm not sure I can get all the pieces of my life to fall into place for that.<br><br>
Good running, nordictracking, armbiking, resting, gang. Have a great one.

Morning gang.<br>
I am going to run after work and gym too. Off tomorrow morning to Hartford.<br>
May run before, may not.<br><br>
Pro, you did a poor job of talking Pink into joining our post and pre race festivities <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Sad">

I'm looking forward to hearing about the East Coasters this weekend, now that it's your turn! Nice runs: KS, that may have been an inconsistent set, but it was fast. Good on ya.<br><br>
Last night, I capped my day with a short pool workout: 3x100 easy, 2x100 kick, 2x250 steady, and a long slow 300m cooldown. I sure like the swimming. It feels good, most days.

Morning, Masters.<br>
Labduck must be getting better. With increased curmudgeonliness comes a huffing puffing <i>runner</i>. You and Mrs. Labduck crack me up.<br>
Is it just me or is Pro getting bossier as the taper continues?<br>
Smokin', ksrnr.<br>
Hey bilmot? How 'bout that Puddinface? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Very Happy"><br>
JJJ, watch that one. Try doing some calf raises; maybe a felt pad in the heel of your shoe.<br>
Nice tri yesterday, Sal.<br><br>
I sure like my new blue tech shirt. Lifts the spirit ... even though I didn't need help with that today. Bring on the day!<br><br>
7k around 8:10<br>
gym at noon

SS - I just recently remembered the calf raises and doing them, and I've worn a heel cushion for a year. After running this AM I found a very tender area on left leg about 1:00 on just below the sock line. Could been there for a year, I don't know. But massage seems to eradicate most of it. I'll keep watch.<br><br><br>
(from the race thread)<br>
I'd be game for a western race next year after Feb. 30-50k, downhill, hot springs and snowdrifts at the finish line, maybe? We'll have to work on PieJ.<br><br>
Thank yee,<br>

The marathon is on Sunday and I have been training for it all summer. Why do I suddenly feel like I am not ready?? My right hip flexor is tight and I am so tired. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Very Happy"><br><br>
ksrunr, you run a lot of miles and you are fast! You are going to be so ready for your 5K in November!

ksrunr, will 18:30 be a master's PR? Zoom!<br><br>
Susan, good workout. What's the concert?<br><br>
JJJ, <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Very Happy">. I second the calf raises. And stretches (straight leg and bent leg wall pushups). But not if it makes the pain worse.<br><br>
Marie, <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Sad"> durn Achilles. Yes, be smart.<br><br>
SS, Puddinhead says hello. She doesn't care what you call her and she wants to give you a big sloppy kiss.<br><br>
Ilene, Puddinhead says you need to chase some cats. That always makes her feel better.
